Hyaluronic Acid (HA) in Bones & Cartilage

The health of the skeletal system and our joints is constantly changing. Throughout the human body, Hyaluronic Acid is found in all cartilage structures, as well as our hair, our skin and even in our eyes. In our skin, hyaluronic acid helps to maintain the retention of moisture, giving our skin that youthful appearance. In regards to the joints, HA is a major component of synovial fluid and therefore helps to increase the viscosity of the fluid, increasing the cushioning effect. HA also offers these various structures a flexible rigidity that helps sustain and support them throughout a person’s lifetime. Most importantly, Hyaluronic acid covers the ends of the long bones where articulation (bending) occurs and provides a cushioning effect for the bones. Unfortunately, as we age, our bodies are steadily depleted of this important fluid. Joint Relief, puts the HA back in our bodies where it belongs.

Synovial fluid is a viscous fluid that provides the elastic shock absorbing properties of the joint, but, it gets degraded over time and loses its elasticity and cushioning ability.

Roughly 50% of the Hyaluronic Acid in our body is found in the skin. HA and Collagen are vital to maintaining the skin’s layers and structure. It is the collagen that gives the skin its firmness but it is the HA that nourishes and hydrates the collagen. Collagen is like a rubber band, but stretch that rubber band a million times, as we do with our skin and eventually that rubber band gets overstretched (saggy) and dried out and will most likely break. This is much the same way the collagen in our skin reacts leaving our skin in need of moisture. Now imagine that same rubber band stretched a million times while under water the whole time. Chances of that rubber band drying out and breaking are minimal. Consider the Hyaluronic Acid as the water that keeps the collagen moist and elastic. Collagen is continuously surrounded and nourished by the gelatinous HA substance. Young skin is smooth and highly elastic because it contains high concentrations of Hyaluronic Acid, which helps skin stay healthy. As we grow older, the body loses its ability to maintain this same concentration in the skin. With decreasing levels of HA in the skin, so goes the ability of the skin to hold water. The result, the skin becomes drier and loses its ability to maintain it’s hydration.

Hyaluronic acid acts as a space filler by binding to water and thus keeping the skin wrinkle-free. The skin is the largest organ in the body comprising about 15% of the body weight.
